. >> in your view, did george w. bush contribute to the decline of the american conservative movement? >> will, there is a strong sediment that he did within conservatives. i do think that the war in iraq, while george bush thought it was a principled action, really caused a great consternation among suffering of the right. and i also think the republicans having gained control of congress in 2004, and being spendthrifts really helped cause a reaction as well. it's easy to forget that bush won a pretty decisive victory in 2004, so the down slide in the fortunes of the republican party were pretty severe, as you look at 2006 at the midterm elections in 2006 and the last election in 2008, presidential election. >> we are speaking with you here at the organization of american historians annual gathering. as a conservative, are you in the minority as a historian? >> i think i am very decided minority. i think minority exaggerates the number of conservatives here at this meeting. i should tell you that i started off on the left. and i got my union card, phd at university of california. they can exp
hair and leg warmers were the thing. michael keaton was batman. >> i'm batman. >> george bush became president. not this george bush. that george bush. and bette midler had the song of the year. ♪ you are the wind beneath my wings ♪ >> that's a long time ago. so if you bought a house in some parts of lancaster or palmdale, california, for $100,000 in 1989, today that same house might be worth, oh, roughly $100,000. >> up, up, up and then crash. >> larry louie is a motorcycle dealer who bought his first house out here for $23,000. saw it appreciate to $100,000. he paid $150,000 in 1986 for his current house. and stayed there while it peaked at half a million dollars. then dropped hundreds of thousands in value. its happened to him and his friends. >> i don't know anybody who's not moaning about it, but we're living with it. >> in some areas of southern california, mostly in desert communities the median price of houses has dropped back to when jelly shoes were the rage and boris becker was the best tennis player. in one lancaster zip code, the median price was $109,000 in 1989 and
? george bush sr. said it too late in his presidency to rebound from it, but if you are going to raise taxes, and that is where it looks like we are inevitably going, get out of the way now. because that is where we are heading, isn't it? >> yes, we are heading that way, but president obama, as a candidate, said he was not going to raise taxes on anyone raising over it -- anyone earning over $250,000. neil: you say that is statistically impossible. >> exactly, and making our country less competitive and hurting small businesses, but the cap and trade scheme is one clearly that will raise the cost of electricity, food, clothing, and fuel, and even admit that they have to have energy welfare checks to try to mitigate the harm to small or lower income families. the last thing they need to do is make our country is less competitive with more taxes, more regulatory burdens, and this enormous debt. they actually got to learn from the cash for clunkers. if you reduce the price of something, people will go out and buy it. if you increase the cost of electricity and fuel and natural gas, it is
strategist, keith, editor of "the daily voice," and an aide to president george h.w. bush. joe, let's start with you, what do you think? obama, tax on the middle class, increases, going to happen or not? >> can you spell flip-flop, dennis? this is going to be a huge flip-flop. he's going to have to raise taxes on the middle class, there's no way to spend $1 trillion on health care, $1 trillion on recovery and stimulus and then raise federal spending by 12% without taxing the middle class.s. >> i think julie that has the answer. you just tax people more than $250,000, right? >> hey, den, i know you showed footage of robert gibbs at the briefing to, i know you watched carefully when the president's spokesperson said very clearly that obama was not going to raise taxes on the middle class despite what you may have heard over the week. >> that's because the two lieutenants on the sunday -- he will say -- >> come on, unlike george bush who was controlled by other people in his administration, he does not answer to timothy geithner, doesn't answer to larry summers e he's the president of the unit
have got right now. george bush's no child left behind. i'm a bit of a cynic but test scores have been dropping since 1964 in this country. sometimes up a little bit. basically the trend line is down. the collapse of the family, the culture has affected this. you know, -- from kids coming to school without aptitude and interest and things like that. i don't think we're getting at the basic problem at all. we're throwing more money to a industry that has fundamentally failed america. >> eleanor? >> this is the most discretionary money any secretary of education has had. it probably combines the sums that all of the several recent secretaries have had. o to set up a competition among the states in terms of charter schools, innovative projects, i think it is what has made america great the sort of innovative spirit. the only downside i see is you have some states like mississippi and alabama who don't like federal control, and will see this as a dangerous way for the federal government to interfere. they don't like federal standardized tests and it will just keep those folks at the bottom
in order to win re-election for george w. bush in 2004. well, the two men whom tom ridge said pressed for an elevated threat level, josh ashcroft and donald rumsfeld, they refused to comment themselves but instead left it to the flakes, if you will, to dispute ridge's version of events. ashcroft's spokesman said this, didn't happen. now would be a good time for mr. ridge to use his emergency duct tape. that's pretty snarky. rumsfeld's spokesman implied it was about the selling of books. quote, the story line advanced by his publishers seemingly to sell copies of the book is nonsense. it would seem reasonable for senior officials to discuss the threat level. well, of course, we're not here going over what the so-called story line put out but publish irs, we are quoting directly from ridge's book and we'll continue to do so. we have an advanced copy, sir. former bush chief of staff andy card denied the politicization. we bent over backwards repeatedly and with great discipline to make sure politics did not influence any national security or homeland security decision. that was what card
of secrecy will reveal his grievances with his boss, former president george w. bush, and detail their heated arguments in full. someone who attended a recent cheney gathering described cheney's disappoint with bush and said -- tom defrank is the washington bureau chief of "the new york daily news" and pat buchanan is an msnbc analyst. tom defrank, what do we make of this? is dick cheney ready to violate his blood oath of science? >> i think he is up to a point. i guess i think he's going to show a little leg. he's certainly going to deal with the differences between himself and president bush, especially in the second term, but i suspect that cheney is not going to be particularly personal about his view of president bush. i was in contact this afternoon with somebody who is very familiar with both the book and cheney's view, and i'm told that "the washington post" story in this view distorts both cheney's view of president bush and what he intends to do in the book. we'll just have to see. >> pat buchanan, you're a veteran of the nixon white house where a lot of books came in the aftermath
head, a genuine, and then george bush crushed him in 2000 bush question and to south carolina and 80 years later he is running again for the presidency and he is defending the war policies of the george bush and he could not break loose out of that. he was trapped. i will not get into sarah palin. you can ask questions about that. [laughter] that is another story that kept coming. maybe we can wrap up and take questions. do you want to say a couple more things? >> let's just go to questions. >> there are so many people here. >> you are all standing but one more thing, we tried to draw the end of this book what the lessons we thought the election told us. not just as reporters are journalist or writers but americans. there were obviously many and they will be lasting but the obvious thing is a race. what the selection said. why the election was more than an endurance test it was a test of american people and their institutions, a first less than most obviously was raised. in 1619 when a battered dutch privateer came up did james river to deposit the first african-american slaves on th
of the leaders of peace and campaign for george bush and other republican candidates. -- the hispanic campaign for george bush and other republican candidates. when you combine this with the immigration stuff, the republican party is headed for minority status, a permanent minority status for the foreseeable future, if it does not do something to get back a significant portion of this fastest-growing group of voters in the country. >> oh, those awful republicans, scoring negative to flee on sotomayor. -- negatively on sotomayor. barack obama as a senator scored -- voted no on a john roberts, perhaps the most excellent candidate in years. his reason was ideology. it is perfectly reasonable, if you are a conservative, but that he would oppose were on ideology but personally, i would vote for her, the way that lindsey graham is, because i would like to establish the gold standard of approving a candidate of the opposition, even though ideologically you are different b. but it is the democrats, starting with robert bork, that institute the principle that if the ideology is different, you ought not
if somebody in the george w. bush administration. bill: they would have gone wild. >> said if you disagree -- if somebody disagrees with the president, send us those emails. the "new york times" would run a month long page one series and the stories about the fascistic bush administration would be under headlines the -- bill: it's interesting you mention that because in the b block after you, we are going to discuss that very thing about judge napolitano who says there is a fascistic element to it all right, now, once again we know that the reportage in america isn't fair and balanced. that if it is a left wing cause, and organized by internet sites or whatever on et left, that's fine. there is no problem with that we are not even going to bother to cover it if it is a conservative movement or organized by the right, then there is something dastardly about it. and i don't think it's any -- that's as clear as it can get. >> i totally agree. i will give you another example. there have been a number of columns, just in the past couple of days saying that the entire republican party is a lunat
been, and it is educational in that respect. host: bellevue, washington. go ahead. caller: george bush was in redmond, and a buddy and i sat there all day. the police produced a good security, but they will tell you, in the starbucks, somebody left their credentials. can you believe that? secret service left their badge and gun right there in the bathroom. guest: things do happen. i do not think that is endemic. agents had a brave, dedicated -- the problem is that the secret service is cutting corners. we went through all of these large ships at young ages and now have to do the same thing. today we have private injury -- industry and salaries. they've cut the size of certain teams. they are not keeping up to date with firearms. they use the mp five submachine gun. the m-four is much more powerful and used by the fbi, but secret service does not want to spend the money. also, on a typical training and firearms, the secret service is not allowed the time for agents to do that and they are covered up by asking agents to fill up their own forms. another cover-up is that when members of co
george bush's system -- here's the deal. when you're through yelling, raise your hand and i will talk. i assume by bailout, you mean the $700 billion in george bush asked congress to vote for last year. do you disagree with that fact? you say don't blame on george bush. [inaudible] there is an indicator and i hope people understand, when you say people things cannot refute, they try to drown you out and that's understandable. i understand why people resent the fact that my mentioning it was george bush's bill. when it comes to bailouts, as people call them, whether it's general motors -- let me talk about aig then. i will talk about aig for a minute because aig was done by the bush administration was no congressional votes. it was the bush administration officials decided to bail out aig. it was bush who first decided to bail out general motors and chrysler without a congressional vote. yes. on fannie mae and freddie mac, i will be glad to respond to that. the bailout of fannie mae and freddie mac, we passed legislation in 2007 in the house that george bush asked us to pass when the demo
-day job approval rating is about the same as george bush's was but that says nothing about their political coattails or the likely success of their presidency. george h.w. bush had the highest job approval rating and bill clinton the lowest 200 days into their presidency. wendell goler, fox news. chris: in other political news, florida republican senator mel martinez is resigning. he made the announcement in orlando, citing a desire to return to his family in florida. he had earlier said he would not run for re-election next year. republican governor charlie crist will name his replace many. crist was already running to replace martinez but says he will not appoint himself. and new york democratic congresswoman caroline maloney says she will not run for the senate next year. maloney had considered challenging incumbent kirsten gillibrand who was appointed when hillary clinton became secretary of state. democratic leaders, including president obama, have tried to discourage potential challengers to gillibrand. a powerful democrat who resisted efforts to make public records a
in order to win re-election for george w. bush in 2004. well, the two men who tom ridge said pressed for an elevated threat level, josh ashcroft and donald rumsfeld, they refused to comment themselves but left it to their flacks, if you will, to dispute ridge's version of events. ashcroft's spokesman said this, didn't happen. now would be a good time for mr. ridge to use his emergency duct tape. that's pretty snarky. rumsfeld's spokesman implied it was about the selling of books. the story line advanced by his publisher seemingly to sell copies of the book is nonsense t would seem reasonable for senior officials to discuss the threat level. we're not here going over what the so-called story line put out by publishers. we're quoting directly from ridge's book, and we'll continue to do so. we have an advance copy, sir. former bush chief of staff andy card denied the politicization. we bent over backwards repeatedly and with great discipline to make sure politics did not influence any national security or homeland security decision. that was what card said. and he's fairly credible that
respect to george bush one, completely out of touch. >> they were out of touch. >> and i think this is what mike was saying, you get a lot of this anger, concern and fear and apprehension beand it's all bui up. they're hearing about this health plan and they respond. >> it's not just that. mike barnicle, it's also, let's say for instance, cam and trade. cap and trade very important to those on the far left in america but if you look at polls that have been released lately, that is so insignificant. i know global warming is something celebrities and people on the left are just absolutely wrapped up in. it's the most important thing in the world to a lot of these people. you look at the polls of americans. that is so low on the list, it's in single digits, i believe. i'm sure somebody from media matters will say -- i've seen polls where americans who care about the environment, global warming is on the bottom of that list and yet they jammed this bill through congress and, again, it just distracts americans from what you say are the top priorities. jobs, jobs, and jobs. >> most n
the administration of george w. bush. this is the guy who i think it's fair to say, you helped centrally get into the white house with the election of. do you feel that the election of george bush was a failure in diplomatic terms? >> no i do not. a lot depends on how iraq will finally turn out. if iraq turns out to be a functioning state as opposed to a failed state in the heart of the middle east that has embraced democracy not necessarily a jeffersonian democracy in the way we think of it but a functioning and a solid, stable state in the heart of the mideast, i think george w. bush will be seen as being a very successful president. >> despite the price, despite the cost? >> i think so, yes. but that's a different question. the question of whether iraq -- we're talking now about whether iraq is a success and what i'm saying is i think the jury is still out on that and if iraq turns out to be a functioning state, a democracy in the heart of the middle east at peace with its neighbors and not brutalizing its own people, then i think it will be a success. the other thin
this done. do you think george bush could have done this? real diplomacy works and cowboy diplomacy does not. >> i am no fan of george w. bush. >> that doesn't answer what i'm saying. let me jump in for a second. we saw when you reach across the aisle and try to resolve differences you can open doors and that's what history has shown so this idea you should never talk to anyone is absolutely been proven wrong time and time again and obama is still in his hole. we didn't smoke him out of his hole as george w. bush said. >> respond quickly, please. >> i'm not fan of george w. bush. he was multilateral for my taste in terms of compromising in order to create coalitions, when america have could have and should have defended itself on its own terms. george bush talked to the north koreans, negotiated with them, and they stabbed him in the back just like they stabbed bill clinton in the back when he negotiated with them throughout the '90s. >> right. >> negotiations with evil regimes don't work and never have in history. >> get us back to john harwood. john, why do woo north korea care at all abou
or look for a way to topple the regimes in iran and north korea? he thought he had george bush convinced of this. and bush walked away from it in the second term. it gets more personal than that, however, because cheney is saying bush did so for the wrong reasons. when he describes bush as caring too much about public opinions, that's a cardinal sin in cheney's world. people who seek after popularity, who -- change their mind in response to polls, show resolve. those are people that are -- are morally lacking at and point. dick cheney is an anti-politician a guy that thinks that -- unpopularity in the service of the right policy is a badge of honor. >> are there any indications -- did you get any indications at this point what specifically he thinks bush did or did not do or is it still in those generalized sort of being responsive to the american public? >> look, dick cheney is not a guy that spills his guts in even in small group, private meetings. it is surprising and unusual he said as much as he did. the question was about rexwrets he, cheney, had and regret was bush walked away. th
and when that all changed. in our fourth story, dick cheney's disappointment with george w. bush and bush's break with him has fueled cheney's willingness to write about it, all about it. new details from one of the informal gatherings the former vice president has been holding to discuss his upcoming memoir. barton gellman will join us in a moment. in the second term, he felt bush was moving away from him. he said bush was shackled by the public criticism he took. the implication was that bush had gone soft on him, or rather, bush had hardened against cheney's advice. it was clear that cheney's doctrine was cast iron strength at all times, never apologize, never explain, and bush moved toward the conciliatory. cheney had not and now his disdain for what he perceived to be weakness in the obama administration's approach to national security may soon be directed at bush. quoting again from the article, cheney himself has said without explanation that the statute of limitations has expired on many of his secrets. when the president made decisions that i didn't agree, i still supported him a
. >> here's what is left over from george bush. first the bailouts last fall. the housing bubble. the spending on iraq. but critics say obama's problems are partly his own making. first, a lack of a stiff punch. and now his health care plan that some say could be too big. wike, we're heavily invested in this president, almost a billion dollar in stimulus spending. lots of action already. can he just blame it on the last guy. >> he's beginning to own. that's why we're seeing changes in his upon later -- pap later but the questions people are asking are these changes cyclical or permanent. i think they're permanent. barack obama has to deal with the fact that the economy is changing in a transformative way. chris: we could have a period of very high single digit unmoment. up around 8 or 9. >> absolute my. he has to make changes while he's climbing uphill. chris: you cover wall street, what do the brains want him to do about unemployment and the debt numbers. >> the deficit is a huge problem for wall street. wall street is looking at the economy over the next six months. and saying,
of factors that are obvious. the economy was bad and getting worse. the war on popular. george bush presidency had gone from the highest point recorded, 90% approval rating right after 9/11 and then sinking like this all the way down to nixon before he resigned and then the sense of anxiety in the country about the future politics wasn't working and we had a whole host of characters, and enormous testing time for the country and that was the background for the story that we embark on telling. and it turned out to be as barbara said it was the story of a lifetime. it was the most remarkable thing to cover, to watch, to try to understand and analyze the characters were remarkable and we will get into that later. i will just say one thing. in the interview -- when the president spoke as president-elect we asked about what he would look back on this election and tells the story. he said it was a great novel. [laughter] then he went on. it's quite extraordinary to hear the president talking the characters and who they work and it was just i can't imagine a president in my lifetime thinki
the obama administration to be a success. that compares with a figure of 56% for president george w. bush at the very same point in his presidency. president obama faces powerful opposition to his health care plan. anger about the prospect of higher taxes and rising skepticism about his economic policies. candy crowley has our report. >> reporter: the president's approval rating has been dropping since april, but the 56% he has now is a lot of political capital. but, of course, nothing to count on. at the same point in his administration, former president george bush had a 55% approval rating. thick transit poll numbers. it's been a busy 200 days for the new president. main with a lot on his plate in the march of history in his sight. >> i know there's some who believe we can only handle one challenge at a time. they forget that lincoln helped lay down the transcontinental railroad and passioned the home stead act and created the national academy of sciences in the midst of civil war. >> reporter: still, the president seems too busy for the vast majority of americans. asked if he's tried
as under george bush, there were plenty of people angry about that and demonstrating and speaking out. why should these people at town halls be listened to any more than other people in past years have been listened to, exercising the democratic right to speak. does it necessarily mean there's a ground swell against any kind of reform? >> well, a couple of observations on that. first of all, this ground swell is a ground swell. unlike the marches we see in san francisco and on the washington mall. we saw during the rampup to the hostilities. these were manufactured. those were the astroturf. if i learned anything in my more than two decades of being an activist radio talk show host, i don't tell people to do anything. >> you can't honestly say opposition to the war was manufactured and artificial, you can't say that and at the same time say that but what you're doing is completely not, you know, being fund by groups. everybody is being fund by groups here. >> the difference is what i'm doing is running to the front of the parade and saying follow me. during those other protests, ramsey cla
out. you get into george bush. >> you mentioned george bush. you really shed a tear for george nixon -- for richard nixon? >> there is something about nixon. he was probably the single most hated politician in washington. it was something you heard about constantly, not just people who agree with it -- disagree with him politically. there was something about his weirdness and his ambition which sometimes was successful such as china. it is compelling and there is an element of tragedy because he really threw it away through a federal personal flaw of paranoia. >> back to your column. you say, "unlike nixon, president bush is less an overreaching machiavelli it then and at the plunder -- a blunder were surrounded by machiavelli's. explain that. >> my feeling about bush has not changed. he was a guy who was not terribly ideological. he certainly campaigned on not doing nation-building or having a very modest foreign policy and getting a few things done. after 9/11, he was surrounded by very powerful personalities who had strong ideologies. he been with that wind -- he'd been with that
air lawyer rick scott, a former partner in the texas rangers baseball team with george w. bush. he now owns a chain of health clinics after he had been ousted as head of the columbia hca company after it was under investigation for frauding taxpayers ashgs fraud to which it pleaded guilty. what is the goal for purchasing lecters and lobbyists? the hill said it is first, quote, creigh eight delays and then if talks break down, use that opportunity to, quote, outright kill a proposal. and this salient fact, the dollar is being used to try to kill health care reform originate in the health care fees charged the very patients who would benefit from health care reform. let's turn now to the founder and publisher of dailycoast.com and author of "taking on the system: rules for radical change in dath tall era" which comes out in paperback next week. mark, congratulations on the paperback. >> thank you very much. and glad to see you back from vacation. >> thank you, kindly. me, too. ultimately, what do the insurance companies and big pharma and the other health care-related industries, what do
, then they should start treating them the way they treated george bush, because that is the way the media treated lincoln. his critics compared him to an aide, called him an illiterate baboon, if only al sharpton were around, we would have known he was a victim of racism. our fiercely independent media has produced dozens of news stories on obama's amazing likeness to abraham lincoln. they're both from illinois, geniuses, great dancers, make their own clothes. back in illinois, they're still talking about the fist balled mary todd and lincoln shared the night he wrapped up the nomination -- fist bump mary todd and lincoln share of the night he wrapped up the nomination. lincoln put rivals on his cabinet. i'm not sure reaching out and buying their entire cabinet at fire sale prices constitutes reaching out to rivals. i guess it has a nicer ring to it then reaching out to backscatter -- backstabbers. obama is the person most likely to have poison put in his coffee by hillary, but only because bill stopped eating and drinking around hillary along time ago. liberal victim ology toward the nation's en
worked for awhile for george bush, and i think there really are two very simple answers. es simply a failure of imagination. a lot of people have likened th to 9/11 and it is a metaphor that makes me uncomftable beuse a lot lot of people died in 9/11 and this hasn't been that kind of event. there were pele who have said that the people who defendedur country did not think it possible that someone could commandeer freer for airplanes and fly them into the pentagon and the world trade center and so forth. this was a similar thing. it simply did not occur to people who were responsible for managing t financial system that so much of the financial system could be built on a single premise that turd out to be wrong, that housing prices across the united states w't fall. he might have flaws in one community of but it would not fall everywhere. turned up the ayn financial system that was the house of cards built on this flimsy foundation because houses for the collateral for mortgages that were turned in securities that were turned to the more securities that returned to more securities a

living presidents here as well. of course, president jimmy carter, president george w. bush. and president bill clinton. already we have seen a number of people arrive. we saw senator kery and senator dodd who beautifully eulogized and with a lot of laughs last night at that irish wake. >> norah, stay with us. that's -- we saw going into that church where ted kennedy visited to pray for his daughter. then prayed for behind own health. we have seen chris dodd and many of his closest friends going in there. john kerry, of course, the -- the leaders of washington, the world. will be showing up inside of that church. >> massive showing of support and celebration of his life and legacy going into that church today. also lining the streets yesterday and what we will see throughout the day today will be many of the common man, if i may. but just people like us who want to say good-bye because this man touched so many people and his family touched so many people in so many ways. he is, of course, the last of the kennedy brothers. which is a real passing of an icon in american histor
. these were changes, of course, from the bush administration, from the administration of george w. bush. this is a guy who i think it's fair to say you helped centrally get into the white house with the election of 2000. do you feel as though the administration of george bush was a failure in diplomatic terms. >> no, i certainly do not. i think a lot depends, of course, upon how iraq will finally turn out. if iraq turns out to be a functioning state as opposed to a failed state in the heart of the middle east that has embraced democracy, not necessarily a jeffersonian democracy in the way we think of it, but a functioning and a solid, stable state in the heart of the middle east, i think that george w. bush will be seen to have been a very, very successful president. >> even despite the price? despite the cost? >> i think so, yes, but, you know, that's a different question. the question of whether iraq -- we're talking now about whether iraq is a success, and what i'm saying is i think the jury is still out on that, and if iraq turns out to be a functioning state, a democracy in the hea
enough? >> it is the same thing about george bush and dick cheney. they got it done. >> he is bowling down to conservatives. he is not taking a hammer to this thing. george bush got an agenda through and obama needs to do the same. >> this is john. we had eight years of $1 million per month toward iraq. if we had taken that money for a war that was not supposed to be happening to begin with, we would not be going through this now. >> that was his platform to get rid of the war. he kept bush's agenda. >> we cannot just leave. >> that is not totally true. he has not just kept bush's agenda on iraq. when you get there and you're privy to that information, maybe your plan should change. >> can we give them a chance? since he took over, and nobody gives him a chance. he is a pariah. he is our president. sean: the debt in the short time he has been in office has quadrupled since he has become president. he has quadrupled the deficit. are people supposed to be quiet? >> i am in shock at what i am hearing. we have somebody who rammed through a stimulus, someone who is mirandize interest on th
. george bush made iraq the central thing and he went out and tried to sell it tried to sell the surge. he campaigned for it to a certain extent. for obama, you know you can't do more than one major push at a time. it's healthcare. americans are far more focussed on the domestic issues now than they were sort of post 9/11 and those years. >> the difference is you won't have the doctors and nurses flying planes in the buildings. the president is not speaking on this issue. not selling the war as he did in the campaign. george bush was out there talking about the terrorist threat. the subject is off the radar for a lot of people. >> another story we couldn't help but notice. a big announcement for "dancing with the stars." abc's chris cuomo now. >> tom delay the former house majority leader is a new member of the cast of "dancing with the stars." the question is will tiptoeing around partisan factions and pirouetting on policy points lead to a winning ballroom bounce? that is the question. >> well then the mocking began. some of it funny, some of it snide. here is
reform are. bret: does senator cornyn's part about if its was george w. bush that asked for e-mails, it would have been -- >> look, i'm not as sanguine as my colleagues on this. the first amendment says that congress shall make no law abridging the freedom of speech, now, however, the president will collect e-mails that contain fishy disinformation. i mean, that's orwelian language that you get out of hugo chavez when he shuts down 100 radio stations. i don't think there is a conspiracy of collecting ip addresses but a white house ought not be collecting disinformation. even that language is language in america that we don't use. it is a language of dictators, and the tactic here is chicago-style politics. it is disgraceful. bret: i would never describe you as sanguine, certainly not on this show. mahmoud ahmadinejad is sworn in as a iranian president for a second term, coming up. to stay in tune with life after 50, i switched to a complete multivitamin with more. only one a day women's 50+ advantage... has gingko for memory and concentration... plus support for bone and breas
